An autopsy of a woman found deceased on Davie Smith Street Wednesday came back as initially undetermined regarding the cause of her death.

Halifax County Sheriff Wes Tripp said in a statement the autopsy of Miranda Thacker, 33, of Valentines, Virginia, was performed in Greenville today with detectives in attendance.
“We need the medical expertise of the pathologist to determine cause of death,” the sheriff said this evening. “In any of the cases we work, we need medical evidence that determines natural causes or foul play. We’re at the point in this investigation where the cause is undetermined.”
Pathologists plan to conduct more tests, the sheriff said, declining to elaborate.
Tripp Wednesday said Thacker has ties to the area.
Detectives continue to investigate the case, he said, and anyone with information is encouraged to call the sheriff’s office at 252-583-8201 or Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444.
